Help a good Veteran, Jerry C., get his life back

My goal is to help a gentleman who lives on the streets. This is my first photo.  He’s a veteran in his early 50’s.  I’ve been trying over a year to get him housing and counseling plus a new life. Jerry is his first name. Picture will follow in the future.  Jerry has PTSD. I need to gather funds in order to at least pay for a hotel room for a while in order for him to be safe, shower, sleep in a bed or couch versus a cold dirty floor from a building or the ground. Jerry needs clothing, shoes, a haircut, personal hygiene products, learning tools and a cell phone.  The basics of daily life.   His immediate family members are deceased. He has no criminal record.  No drug or alcohol issues.  Jerry is a great man who doesn’t know how to get help and needs to be taught how to make food again and operate devices.  It’s a very sad situation and the people and places I have been speaking with in regards to Jerry has failed.  Many people know his situation and don’t want to be bothered.  I need these funds ASAP.  Funds would be used in good faith to prosper Jerry’s life and future.  The support would mean a lot to Jerry and myself because he wants the help.  He desires a better life and understanding of his life.  The funds would supply new clothing, appointments for Jerry.  Jerry has been wearing the same clothes this entire year.  No haircut or grooming has he done.  I’ve known Jerry for 4 years and it’s time for a good change.  I see it as a blessing to receive any help anymore can offer.  He has been sleeping on the front porch of a local church this past 4 months.  He has received signs on the benches on the porch of this church, that he must find a new place to shelter.  The woods get old. Get scary.  Bugs crawling all over him while sitting in the woods or trying to sleep.  Please help me help Jerry.  Everyone’s lives matter.
